Valley County is a rural county located in west central Idaho in the United States. Established in 1917, it was named after the Long Valley of the North Fork of the Payette River. Since 1948 much of the northern valley has been covered by the Cascade Reservoir. Lake Cascade has become a renowned fishery and recreational water lake.
The county's primary highway is the north-south State Highway 55, the Payette River Scenic Byway, a designated national scenic byway. It heads north from Eagle in Ada County to Horseshoe Bend in Boise County, and climbs the whitewater of the Payette River to Cascade and McCall. The route turns west at Payette Lake in McCall and ends at New Meadows in Adams County, at the junction with US-95. Hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, Nordic skiing, whitewater rafting/kayaking, anding and fishing hve increased dramatically in the past twenty years, as has the use of off-road recreational vehicles, motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles, and snowmobiles.
